5 STAR PERFORMANCE FROM THE TOWN

19th August 2018

5 STAR PERFORMANCE FROM THE TOWN

Llangefni travelled to the highly rated Llandudno Albion yesterday knowing that they needed to be at their best to get the 3pts. With Chris Saxon, Callum Mcminimee, Iwan Jones, Sean Pritchard, Paul Rowlands and new signing Kev Lloyd all unavailable, Llangefni had to make a few changes to the team that beat Llanrug during mid-week. 

 


Llangefni started well and saw most of the possession in the first 10 minutes. On 15 minutes Llangefni were awarded a freekick on the corner of the 18yrd box after a foul on Liam Morris. Steve Kehoe delivered a great ball into the box with Alan Mark scoring a great half volley past the Albion Keeper. It was soon 0-2 to Llangefni when a great run from captain James Saxon saw him get on the end of a through ball from Marvin Pritchard before delivering the ball across goal for Liam Morris to convert. Albion by now could not contain Llangefni and resorted to a few bad tackles, Marvin Pritchard and Steve Kehoe feeling the brunt of them.  Just before half time manager Chris Roberts made a change and brought Craig Roberts on to try and get at Albion even more. (HT 0-2)


The second half got under way with Albion having a real go at Llangefni but couldn’t quite get a shot on target. Cai Powell struck a shot from all of 35yards out which took a wicked deflection and looped over the Albion Keeper making it 3 without reply for Llangefni. By now Llangefni were well on top again and both Liam Morris and Alan Mark had great chances to increase the lead but just couldn’t direct their headers into the back of the net. A corner kick saw Dan “Bambi” Thomas’s effort cleared off the line by an Albion defender. Chris made two substitutions bringing on Cameron Jones and Matthew Jones and we didn’t have to wait long for them to make an impact with Matthew jones chasing down a back pass to the Albion keeper  causing him to miss kick the ball and Matthew took the ball and finished into an empty net. Some great link up play between both Matthew and Cameron once again saw Cameron place a low shot into the bottom left corner of the net from just inside the box to make it 5. On 88 minutes Llangefni Goalkeeper had his first save to make parrying a low cross from Albion which ended up as a corner. 


We caught up with manager Chris Roberts after the match:

“A result worthy of the performance today i feel, the lads once again were outstanding. I asked them before the match to go and push on from the win at Llanrug in midweek, i wanted to see the same tempo off the ball where we chased everything down and not gave them a moments peace, i thought the defence were solid once again and we never looked like conceding to be honest. It was great to score 5 and especially for new signings Liam Morris and Alan Mark to get their first competitive goals for the club. We could have scored more to be honest and found ourselves in really good positions to cause them problems. Whats also pleasing is to see we had 6 missing again today and that we have squad capable of rotation and can adapt to different oppositions, situations and style of play. Another clean sheet is always good making it 3 out of 3 now. The lads are working really hard and there is a great togetherness in the dressing room. We look forward to The next game now.”


Full time result:

Llandudno Albion 0-5 Llangefni Town


Scorers:

Alan Mark Owen, Liam Morris, Cai Powell-Roberts, Matthew Jones, Cameron Jones

KEV LLOYD BACK AT LLANGEFNI!

17th August 2018

KEV LLOYD BACK AT LLANGEFNI!

We are pleased to announce the signing of the prolific attacking player Kev Lloyd. Kev has played for Llangefni in the past and we are delighted to see him back.

Manager Chris Roberts was delighted to get the deal done:

"Kev is a player i tried to get in at the beginning of the season but with Charlie going as manager at Llanrug he opted to sign for him at Llanrug. Kev is a great signing and will give us another dimension to our attacking play. There is no doubt that Kev knows how to find the back of the net having done so consistently at a high level for many years. I am looking forward to working with Kev and having him join up with the rest of the squad.

Can I also thank Charlie, Emyr and all at Llanrug FC who helped with the transfer."

Welcome to Llangefni Town Kev......

LLANRUG FC 0-2 LLANGEFNI TOWN FC

16th August 2018

The second match of the 2018/19 season saw The Town travel to face Llanrug United FC. 

First Half: Llangefni made 4 changes from the 0-0 draw at Llanberis on the weekend and they opted to play with the wind behind them in the first half shooting down towards the dressing rooms. Llangefni saw most of the possession but it was proving to be tricky with he ball skidding off the wet surface. Both Dan "Bambi" Thomas and Alan Mark Owen came close with headers going inches over the bar. Llanrug were denied a penalty when Aaron Hughes appeared to dive in the box the referee waved play on and for him to get back to his feet. On 41 minutes Llangefni had a free-kick just inside the opposition half, Steve Kehoe stepped up to drive a shot towards the Llanrug Goal with the wind helping, the ball bounced in front of Dylan Roberts the Llanrug keeper and he fumbled the shot into the path of Alun Roberts who tapped in the rebound to give Llangefni the lead (0-1).

Second Half: The second half started well with Llangefni moving the ball quickly forward and Alan Mark Owen found the unmarked Paul Rowlands who fired his shot low only to see it saved by the Llanrug goalkeeper. Cai Powell-Roberts delivered 2 or 3 fantasitc crosses into the box with Alan Mark Owen and Sean Pritchard going close. By now Llanrug were really putting the pressure on Llangefni who had to defend well against the wind. Steve Kehoe blocking a shot from Kev Lloyd and Dylan Owen also going close for the hosts. Steve Sinclair was not being beaten in between the sticks pulling off 2 great saves to keep the score ate 1-0. On 88 minutes Llangefni hit on the break and Cai Powell-Roberts played a fantastic through ball to Craig Roberts who calmly finished making it 0-2.

After the game we caught up with manager Chris Roberts: "A cracking 3 points for the lads tonight in testing conditions. What was most pleasing is the way we dug deep in the second half when we were under pressure and finding it hard to get out at times with a strong wind against us. The way the lads put their bodies on the line to ensure the win was fantastic blocking shots winning every tackle. Llanrug is never an easy place to go and we knew this going into the game. We lost twice there last season so this was a great result. Another clean sheet as well which is always nice. I can't fault any of my lads tonight they all put a shift in and carried out my instruction"

Full Time: Llanrug Utd FC 0-2 Llangefni Town FC

Scorers: Alun Roberts (41), Craig Roberts (88)

Ali Jones

2nd August 2018

Roeddem yn drist clywed y newyddion am farwolaeth cyn chwaraewr y clwb Allan Jones.

Roedd Ali yn rhan hanfodol o lwyddiant y clwb yn y nawdegau cynnar ac roedd wrth wraidd yr amddiffyn yn y tîm â gurodd y gwpan Intermediate yn 1992.

Mae ein cydymdeimlad yn mynd allan i'w deulu a'i ffrindiau.

                        **************
 
 
We were sad to hear the news of the passing of former player Allan Jones. 

Ali was a crucial part of the club’s success in the early nineties and was at the heart of the defence in the Intermediate Cup winning side of 1992. 

Our thoughts go out to his family and friends.
